Important: The Znode publish to preview feature works independently for CMS modules based on a setting (available in web.config file in code). This feature works in conjunction with the global preview feature: When the global preview is on and CMS based preview is off, the publish to preview feature will be turned off for only the CMS module.

  • When the global preview is off and CMS based preview is on, the publish to preview feature will be turned off globally.
